Dr. Clive Dickinson
I am an STFC Advanced Fellow and Reader of astrophysics at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester.
Research associate position to be advertised soon!
We are still looking to fill a position in the area of HI intensity mapping and low frequency foregrounds to begin a.s.a.p. We will be re-advertising for this position shortly. However, if you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact me!
We recently hosted the first workshop on Anomlaous Microave Emission (AME). If you would like to view the talk titles (with downloadable pdf slides) please click here.
Researchers in my group
Dr Michael Peel. Working on Galactic foregrounds and calibration for Planck. Also works on OCRA and AME.
Dr Lorenzo Trojan. Working on radio technology in collaboration with KACST.
Stuart Harper. PhD student (2011-2014). Working on the QUIJOTE experiment and spinning dust.
Matias Vidal. PhD student (2010-2013). Working on QUIET data analysis and polarization foregrounds in WMAP data. Characterising and separating foreground components.
Melis Irfan. PhD student (2010-2013). Working on C-BASS data analysis and foreground characterization/component separation for future experiments.
Previous group members
Costantinos Demetroullas. MSc(R) student (2011-2012). Worked CBI Galactic plane mapping. Now a PhD student at Manchester with Dr Michael Brown.
Hazel Martindale. Summer student (2011). Analysed e-VLA data to map the M78 region. Now a PhD student at the University of Sussex.
Hadrien Montanelli. Work placement student (2011-2012). Worked on radio interferometry and CBI mapping of Galactic objects
Dimitrios Stamadianos. MSc student (2009-2010). Analysed CBI 30 GHz data of W40 to constrain diffuse radiation components including anomalous dust emission.
Antonio Pasqua. MSc student (2009-2010). Analysing spectra from WMAP to constrain the best frequencies for CMB observations in total-intensity and polarization.
I acknowledge and appreciate funding from STFC (Advanced Fellowship and consolidated grant to the University of Manchester), an EU Re-Integration Grant (IRG), an ERC Starting Grant, and KACST (Saudi Arabia).
